There are others, I have seen them

Anyone interested in some nice pines or any other trees? I got this one from Mr Don Blackmond of Gregory Beach Bonsai http://www.gregorybeachbonsai.com/index.html

I hesitate to share this, because there are some that I would like to get in the future :) But Dons such a cool guy & I have to give credit where credit is due. Seriously though, anyone interested should hit Don up on his site. Don is a straight shooter (as harry has said before) & all prices are confidential between you & Don. If you dont see anything you like, email him & give him a price range.....you just might get what you want....:)

Thanks Brian.......Don does have good trees.

Pine Barron, I agree with you 100%.....I feel totally comfortable with Don. I remember my first tree I got from Don.....I was sweating bullets, but Don was calm talking to me on the phone & I just knew I could trust him.

Hi Matt, this pine is 8.5" from the soil line with a 2.75" trunk. Thanks for your kind words. You got relatives in Hawaii?

Very nice JBP!

I followed the link and sent Don a message. Hopefully he'll be able to find me a nice JBP or JWP that I can learn off of, not be ashamed to show, and still not cost me an arm and a leg (I may have been asking for too much there).

Keep us updated on your plans with it. Do you know what you are going to work on first?

Hi Specialkayme, I plan to decandle this tree next month & if all goes well, I should be pulling old needles & thinning out this pine sometime in sept or oct. I will wire this tree after thinning.

Is there a chance Don is anywhere in north/northeast US? I'd be interested in seeing what trees he has available. ;-)

axxonn, Don is located in a rural setting in southwestern Michigan north of the I-80 toll road and south of I-94. Just 2 hours east of Chicago, 3 hours west of Detroit and 4 hours north of Indianapolis.

Got info of his site.
